Le Cake Boutique
Self-taught cake creator and designer, Serap Andreasen, owns Le Cake Boutique, located locally in Northern Virginia. Since 2008, Serap has embraced her passion for baking and creating custom cakes and other sweet and savory baked delicacies for family,friends and customers. Serap’s desire for baking comes from her mother, who quite naturally led her to the kitchen at a young age where creating sweet and savory baked goods became second nature. Encouraged to learn more, Serap explored the expansive city of Istanbul, her hometown, to taste and learn all she could from the finest bakeries and bistros Istanbul has to offer. Stimulated by the rich and decadent dessert flavors she encountered in Istanbul, Serap founded ‘Le Cake Boutique’ with the hope to share her baking passion and a little bit of her Turkish heritage with everyone.
Her lovely work is known for beautifully detailed custom cakes, wedding cakes,traditional and cutting edge pastries that she creates with a unique flair. Her menu consists of French macarons, custom cookies and cupcakes, savory breads, Turkish Baklava, fresh fruit tarts and more. The treats for any occasion are baked fresh daily, using only the finest seasonal fruits and all natural ingredients.
Serap Andreasen loves working directly with her clients to create a custom cake that reflects their individual styles, desires, budgets, event and guest lists. She provides wedding cake tastings, consisting of a large variety of different cake flavors for each couple to try before deciding on elaborate decorations made from the finest fondant, wafer paper and royal icings. Working with the prospective bride and groom, she listens to wants and needs and provides suggestions to help fulfill the customers wishes for the big day. Serap highly recommends for people to book in advance for all events, specially for wedding cakes, as her calendar fills quickly. Her classic, feminine approach to cake design, partnered with her eye for detail and on-trend aesthetic, has led to the forefront of the wedding industry–setting the trends with flawless execution of intricate designs.
